Coleman Placed On Injured Reserve

The Eagles placed strong safety Kurt Coleman on the injured reserve list Wednesday after an MRI showed that he partially tore his biceps muscle in the win at Dallas on Saturday.

Head coach Andy Reid said that it's a six-week injury that is "pretty painful." Coleman is meeting with a specialist to determine whether surgery is needed. No corresponding roster move has been made yet. Rookie Jaiquawn Jarrett will start Sunday in Coleman's place against the Redskins.

The secondary may also be without cornerback Asante Samuel, who is dealing with a hamstring injury suffered two weeks ago in the Jets game. Samuel missed Wednesday's practice. Reid said that it would be "a stretch" for Samuel to play.

Running back LeSean McCoy also missed Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury. Reid said that McCoy wants to play and will play if he's good to go. Reid explained that McCoy does not have a high-ankle sprain.

"We'll see how he does," Reid said.

Reid intimated that everyone else was scheduled to practice Wednesday. A full injury report will be released later this afternoon.
